Rotary Club de la Manche

Bursary Award

 

The Rotary Club de la Manche Bursary Award reflects in a small way the international character of Rotary. The award provides annual bursaries up to £1,000, to assist a young person or persons who are unable to afford the necessary funds, due to personal or family circumstances, to take part in an overseas community work project supported by the Jersey Overseas Aid Commission.

The wish of the members of Rotary Club de la Manche is that the funds, which will go towards the participants overall costs, will assist young individuals to benefit from a life changing experience.

Applicants must be:

  • between 18 and 25 years old;
